OSHA publication on hairdressers’ musculoskeletal health.

As demonstrated during the ERGOHair project, hairdressers are a group of workers whose working ability and health condition may be affected by specific occupational activities. Their daily tasks (cutting, dyeing, etc.) require frequent bending and twisting of the back, the adoption of static postures, long-standing periods and repetitive tasks. Evidence concludes that numerous tasks of the work of hairdressers put them at significant risk of developing musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).

The new OSHA article explores further relations between MSDs and the hairdressing sector, and summarises the findings of a review undertaken as part of the ergoHair project , which aimed to promote a healthy and safe working environment for hairdressers.
